Still lost in Wonderland...


and can't seem to find my timepiece... ;-)

I'm sorry to have been away so long yet again... I still haven't been feeling well... and I needed to sort out a few things in my life... Thankfully, everything seems to be working out for the best and the sun is shinning once again... As far as the physical ailments... the pain is, at times, a constant companion... however, with love and faith, all things are possible and I will get through this with the help of those who love me... and I am starting to feel a wee bit better... :-)

Thank you, Dear Friends, for your lovely thoughts and wishes and emails... I can't express how much your love, thoughtfulness and encouragement means to me... Your friendship is a blessing... and it is such a comfort to know you all are here and thinking of me... :-)

I don't have a lot to report as far as stitching goes... which saddens me as I had hoped to have some Snoopy Happy Dances to share with you all by now... Nonetheless, I am hoping to remedy that this week!!! And I'm itching to start some of my new stash... ;-)

We got a new addition to the family last week... My eldest son, Elisha got a new puppy and she is adorable and sweet as can be! Her name is Sasha and she is a Brindle Tiger Stripe Pit Bull... I must say, though, my cats don't know quite what to make of her... ;-) She is determined to *play* with them and they aren't the least bit interested... poor baby...


Sasha

Elisha and Sasha
Elisha does not like
having his picture taken...
so I just snapped this one
real quick when he wasn't looking... ;-)

I have stitched a wee bit more on Country Cottage Needleworks, Geranium House... though not nearly as much as I had hoped... I think I am going to leave the house CC's Rosy Glow for the time being... :-) Thanks for all your input on colour choices! :-)


Country Cottage Needleworks - Geranium House...
Stitched on R & R 30ct Iced Cappuccino with GAST, CC and DMC Threads ...

And I started a wee project for my youngest son, wee Jamie, who will be graduating with his LPN degree on the 11th of May... They have a clinical class to finish in June, so he won't have his pinning ceremony until sometime in July - the date escapes me at the moment... I'm also stitching the same design for his girlfriend, Paige... she's graduating as well... I knew I didn't have time to finish them both and have them framed by the 11th of May... so I'll wait and present them with the stitched gifts on the day of the pinning ceremony! Oh, yes, the design is Nurses by Kirsten Edwards and it's from the August Issue of The Gift of Stitching ... I'm stitching them on different colour fabrics and using different colour threads... Hopefully, they will like them! I've scanned my working copy of the photo of the design so you can see what it looks like... :-) The saying on the design is: "Nurses have healing hands that touch hearts..."

Oh, and my dd, Brandy and her dbf, Nick left for Florida yesterday... and they leave Tampa this afternoon on their Cruise to The Cayman Islands and Cozumel... she has been over the moon about the cruise for ages now and I know they are going to have a wonderful time! I'll post piccys for you all when they get back home... :-)



Nick and Brandy...

My appt at the Doctor's office on Thursday went okay... the wait wasn't quite as long, so that was nice! I have an appointment with the Rheumatologist on the 5th June... so we shall see what we shall see and hopefully, he will tell me something helpful and positive... And hopefully, I'll be feeling better by then! :-)

I decided to take some much needed time off from work this week... so as of yesterday, I'm off until next Monday! Wooo Hoooo! :-) I want to catch up with my stitching and blogging... gosh, but I am so behind I don't know what any of you are working on or what's going on with you all and I feel so *out of touch*... and so I'm going to sit back and de-stress and visit your blogs and stitch and watch films until my heart's content! :-)

Oh, and Hazel, I'm so glad all your Silks finally arrived for A Most Nobel Pursuit... When I spoke with Drema last week, she said my Lakeside Linens Vintage Examplar has arrived so I went ahead and ordered the NPI Silks for the first square... I'll just order the others later... as I had some other goodies screaming my name... and I had a few gifts to order as well... Oh, and I got some new stash last week... so I'll be posting a piccy of all my new treasures for you all in a day or two... ;-)

My deepest, heartfelt thanks to all of you for visiting... your lovely wishes, thoughts and encouragement continues to inspire me and your friendship is akin to sweet blossoms in the springtime... :-)

Until next time... Love in Stitches...


I am thankful for precious moments... blessed friends... days off... my children and my sunshine...

Hello Lizzy! I´m glad to hear from you again, I was a little worried about how you are feeling. Good luck with the appt. with the rheumathologist. I hope that you get some help.

stitcherw said...

Lovely pictures, I enjoyed seeing all the shots of your family. Also, Sasha is adorable, it should be fun watching her figure out how to fit in.

The nurses pillows should be lovely, as will Geranium House. I hope you're feeling better soon so that you can do more of the stitching (and more comfortably) that you so enjoy. Good luck at the doctors and have a good time off from work. Hopefully taking a break will help you rest and recharge.

Lizzy, dear, I'm so sorry you are having such constant pain. I've been there and there is nothing like unrelenting pain. I'm so sorry. I wish I were there to keep your mind off it or try to help in some way. You are such a faithful and sweet stitching friend, and we miss you when you aren't there to tell us all that's going on with you. What darling children you have! And, I love the richer colors on your "Nurses" stitchery. You are the dearest faery in the forest that I know of....Hugs, Deb

Mary Ann said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment, Lizzy! It's such fun getting to know stitchers the world over, isn't it!

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better and getting some stitching done. Looks like there's lots of excitement with your kids, travels and pinning, etc. Congrats to them, and you!

Have a nice weekend - Happy Mother's Day!

What a sweet puppy, I just want so squeeze her :D I am glad you are able to get the week off to relax a little. Everyone needs a break, and it sounds like you are long overdue. Your daughter Brandy is beautiful! I hope they have fun on their cruise, that sounds so nice. I bet she was thrilled to be off finally.

Thank you so much for all of your wonderful comment you leave. It’s funny how I just “met” you online here and I feel like I’ve known you. It’s fabulous :D
